Tastings 2022

What is Tastings?

Run by the UMSU Creative Arts Department, Tastings is all about the creative development of new ORIGINAL SHORT WORKS and meaningful creative outcomes for students.
This year’s Tastings is all about HOPES & DREAMS, a festival where the wildest and most experimental creative ideas and dreams become reality! Our Tastings Artists have been working on their Tastings projects for quite some time now with the support of our amazing Tastings production team, and are excited to showcase how far their creative hopes & dreams have come since they first pitched them to us!

When is it?

This year, Tastings will run from 14-22nd September in our new home, the Arts & Cultural Building.

Events will be taking place across George Paton Gallery and Arts Lab (Level 1) Guild Theatre (Level 2), and the Level 3 Rehearsal Room.

We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land where we live, work, and learn as the Wurundjeri and Boon Wurrung people of the Kulin Nations, and pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging, and also pay our respects to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders. Sovereignty was never ceded. This always was and always will be, Aboriginal land. Colonisation is ongoing and its presence in art is very prevalent.
